For spring summer 2013, Marika Vera‘s David Lynch inspired collection ‘Welcome To The Rabbit Hole’ takes us on a journey around Twin Peaks, winding through Mulholland Drive and down his Lost Highway.  A celebration of Lynch’s female characters, Vera has designed an elegant and mysterious collection for spring 2013.  I’m a fan of Lynch’s Twin Peaks – in this and his movies his female characters are complex and unique.  Vera captures this using rich colours, deeply sexy sheer fabrics, cut outs and powerful high-cut shapes.

Some of the designs within the spring range are adorned with beautiful swarovski crystal buttons – a collaboration between the brand and Swarovski Elements.

“In the grand design, women were drawn from a different set of blueprints.”  Dale Cooper, Twin Peaks.

    There’s something about this collection that strikes me as very different… perhaps its at least partly to do with the way the campaign as been shot, but the images really do evoke a David-Lynch-esque atmosphere that I would never have associated with lingerie and yet that lends a sort of undone, cerebral vibe to the pieces that I haven’t often seen in lingerie. {Of course, with that said, I get most of my lingerie information from you and Lindsay!}

    @Cee :) Awww, thank you!!

    It definitely does, and this particular shoot has an almost 70s vibe about it with the wooden paneled walls and the rotary phone. Campaigns that tell a story (and that include puppies, obviously) are always among the more interesting!
